    Ep.137 - Ask SV It's All Bullshit

    1:24:01

    Slum Village is a group that has gone through many many lineups to the point where it's frankly surprising that so much change didn't dramatically affect the end product. So what can we owe the consistency to? And are there actual Slum Village fans or fans of J Dilla that just listen to SV as part of Dilla's universe?TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundup - (0:32)Topic Intro - (17:45)Dilla Era - (27:00)Elzhi Era - (43:55)Post-Villa Manifesto - (58:23)Lighter Note - (1:15:13)Thanks for listening.

    Ep.135 - I'm Rather Unique

    1:43:58

    It's practically consensus that AZ is one of the most overlooked lyricists in Hip-Hop history. But why is that? Is it for cynical reasons or is it simply because his best stuff is just that damn good? We go through his album discography and find an answer.TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundups - (1:16) Topic Intro/Ben's Research House - (20:04) Doe Or Die - (29:48) Pieces of A Man - (39:47)9 Lives & Aziatic - (42:55) A.W.O.L - (54:24) The Format - (1:02:44) Undeniable - (1:09:43)Legendary - (1:15:30)Doe Or Die II & Final Thoughts - (1:18:39) Lighter Note - (1:29:15)Thanks for listening.

    Ep.134 - DITD Bites, Vol. 10

    1:28:32

    On the 10th DITD Bites, we talk about dudes going out of their way to say they don't listen to female artists; asking whether TikTok is ushering in a new version of Ringtone Rap and asking whether cover art has gotten worse or not.TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundup - (1:29)Females Vs The "keep it lol" dudes - (24:25)Ringtone Rap 2.0 - (39:11)Cover Art - (57:25)Lighter Note - (1:25:19)Thanks for listening.

    Ep.132 - #UKBHM 2021: Akala

    1:33:07

    Akala is arguably one of the most intelligent people in this world we call Hip-Hop. From the lyrics to the concepts, to the lectures & books outside of the music. It's hard to even encapsulate how deep his philosophical brain goes in the music, but we give it a damn good go.TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundup - (1:50) Topic Intro/Ben's Research House - (19:18) It's Not A Rumour - (30:17) Freedom Lasso - (41:27) DoubleThink - (50:52) The Thieves Banquet - (1:00:15) Knowledge Is Power II - (1:09:50) Lighter Note - (1:24:45) Thanks for listening.

    Ep.131 - #UKBHM 2021: Skepta

    1:36:20

    There are those artists that are right on the frontlines of cultural phenomena. But there aren't many that have been in several like Skepta. From the growth of Grime, to the gold rush of the late 00s/early 10s, to the complete cultural reset of Black British music. Skepta was there for all of it.Weekly Music Roundup - (1:40)Topic Intro/Ben's Research House - (13:11)Greatest Hits - (23:09)Microphone Champion - (32:52)Doin' It Again - (41:39)Konnichiwa (More thoughts on the album on "Contemporary Cool Vol.1") - (1:00:31)"Ignorance Is Bliss" & Final Thoughts - (1:13:01)Lighter Note - (1:29:46)Thanks for listening.

    Ep.130 - #UKBHM 2021: Monie Love

    1:31:10

    Happy UK Black History Month dear listener! If you weren't about last October, we will spend this month doing retrospectives on black UK artists only and for this episode, we cover a UK artist that went to the US and managed to blend Hip-Hop of the time with the soulful dance Black Brits like Soul II Soul were known for. We cover the career of Monie Love.TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundup - (1:19)Topic Intro/Ben's Research House - (18:14)Down To Earth - (36:34)In a Word or 2 - (55:46)Final Thoughts & Post-career - (1:14:15)Lighter Note - (1:21:42)Thanks for listening.

    Ep.129 - Brand Nubian Rock The Set

    1:28:51

    It's rare you have a group that doesn't just stick to their morals but go deeper into them as they go. But here's Brand Nubian, dropping critically loved albums throughout the 90s and half of the time without a key founding member. Mix that with the 5 percenter elements & their production chops as a collective and you have a very interesting group.TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundup - (0:52)Topic Intro/Ben's Research House - (17:11)One For All - (29:19)In God We Trust - (40:38)Everything Is Everything - (50:50)Foundation - (57:33)Fire In The Hole - (1:04:07)Time's Runnin' Out - (1:07:43)Lighter Note - (1:13:46)Thanks for listening.

    Ep.128 - The Sooperman Luva

    1:30:54

    This is one of those retrospectives where we thought we were just going to big up one of the least talked about legends in Hip-Hop. But once we got into that discography, we found much more than a great MC. Give more flowers to Redman.  TIMESTAMPS:Weekly Music Roundup - (1:20)Topic Intro/Ben's Research House - (16:10)Whut?
